Not sure where my late friend Marcel got this recipe but it is fantastic! Such a light, creamy and delicious dessert for any time of the year. This recipe for Creamy Blueberry or Raspberry Dream is a definite keeper.
Creamy Blueberry Dream
- 1 pint fresh blueberries, raspberries or both washed and picked over
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice -
- 1 tablespoon sugar or to taste
- 3/4 cup heavy cream -
- 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a small saucepan, combine blueberries, lemon juice, granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons water. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until blueberries begin to break down and juices boil and thicken, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and transfer to a small bowl. Place bowl in a larger bowl of ice water, and stir mixture occasionally until cold. In a separate bowl, combine cream, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form; fold in 1/3 cup of the blueberry sauce. Divide among 4 dessert dishes, and spoon remaining sauce over tops. Enjoy!
